Oh hell no, Hundley crossed the line
Hundley is living rent free inside Puig's head.
Bigger, emptier, cheaper space than you'd find anywhere in the Bay
He just wanted his first hit of the series give him a break please
I wish [the brawl] would've gone on a little longer, because I would've sucker punched Charley Steiner so bad it wouldn't have been funny" - Duane Kuiper
Of course, he was in fact joking. Will provide a link when/if I can. It was just said on KNBR, the Giants post-game radio channel.
I would need to watch that. Steiner is so bad
"Fly ball...playable for Pence...and it's gone, a home run!"
"Well hit to left!" Caught 30 feet in front of the warning track
Edit: this doesn't even cover how he'll frequently forget the score, the count, or even the names of players. It's so hard to follow a game on radio.
This is probably the most Charley Steiner call ever.
I remember him calling a BJ Upton flyball as "this game is over" and then a few seconds later saying "caught at the track!"
The Dodgers 5 games without Kenley Jansen.
0-5 with 3 blown saves, 4 losses in the 9th inning and 4 one run losses.
5 different bullpen pitchers have gotten the loss in the 5 games, Rosscup, Chargois, Floro, Alexander, Maeda.
We aren't making the playoffs this year.
Hate to break it to you, but last year in September the dodgers already had like 100 wins.
Happy to help
The Houston Astros (73-47, +191 run differential overall) and Detroit Tigers (50-70, -97 run differential overall) have identical 32-29 home records.
The Tigers are 23 games behind the Astros in the overall standings.
I’ll take things I never thought were humanly possible for $600
As a Tigers fan I'm just happy to be talked about in some capacity
Do you wanna have another brawl so you get some more attention?
Not worried. More worried for the rest of the league that will have to endure the new Altuve. Those world class Houston doctors are making him bionic as we speak.
Oakland Athletics are now 1 game back of the Houston Astros for first place in the AL West
3.5 back of the Yankees for the #1 WC spot as well.
We coming for that ass
Oakland decided they do not wish to play in the wildcard game
That Yankees franchise just can’t seem to catch a break
It has officially been a month since the Astros last won a home game (July 14th vs Detroit)
A 73-47 team is somehow 32-29 at home.
This is the most buckwild thing I've ever heard
Not having key players active sucks major wang
Missing Altuve for the entirety of our home games in that time span, Correa for most of them (just got back a couple of games ago), and Springer for around half of them. We have the worst (literally 30th out of 30) home offense since the ASB. Also missing Jake Marisnick which might not seem like a big deal if you look at his season numbers, but he was on fire lately and one of the only offensive players doing something. Yuli is in a slump, Stassi is in a slump, Maldonaldo can't hit at all. Bregs is in a slump by his standards (league average since ASB, season wRC+ is much higher). Pretty much just been the Kemp/Marwin show this month.
TL;DR Can't hit lol, fuck injuries. 3 of our top 4 hitters have been missing, take 3/4 of your top hitters from your team and just imagine how much worse your offense would be, that's where we're at right now.
Benches have cleared in LA as Hundley-Puig exchange of words turns physical
Will provide video when available. Both have been ejected
It reminds me of when Madison Bumgarner got into an argument with Alex Guerrero about him just missing a pitch and saying "calm down you're not that good"
Puig was visibly animated after missing a foul ball and tossed his bat and caught it again, and Hundley said something to him. They jawed at each other, then Puig pushed him, then pushed him again. Puig was pushed away as he went after Hundley, and George Lombard, Dodger first base coach, was pulled to the ground by Hundley as he tried to break it up. Both Hundley and Puig were ejected
EDIT https://streamable.com/owojk via u/Soundpulse5
It's a shame so many Dodgers surrounded Puig so quickly. This is the closest we've been to an all out brawl between these two teams in forever.
Shocked Hundley was tossed, even though I’m sure the ump has a better idea of what’s going on than I do
Surprised that this, of all things, is what set Puig off after years of this back and forth with the Giants
I was about to fall asleep and now I’m gonna be exhausted tomorrow morning
Well that was the most exciting thing we have done in a week
Patrick Corbin has made 10 consecutive starts without allowing a homer, the longest span for the Diamondbacks in 15 years and matching Boston’s Chris Sale for the longest active streak in the majors.
He's gonna get a thick ass check
Probably AJ too. Dyson will probably be our everyday center fielder next year
Don't remind me. Another great player we're gonna lose because we can't afford them.
Don't say that. Please don't say that blasphemy.
Pretty amazing when you consider how small that foul territory is and how little space he had to move around.
"It must be fun to be really good at baseball"
Until we get the next elite defensive 3rd basemen.
I mean, it was a foul ball
Felix Hernandez in his first Bullpen Appearance of his 14 year career : 5 2/3 IP | 5 H | 2 ER | 2 K | 2 BB |
He came in the game in the bottom of the first because James Paxton was hit by a comebacker and had to come out. He looked okay for the first inning, getting a inning ending double play. Control has been a little off but his average velo is up. Lowrie hit a 335 foot pop fly HR off of him which makes up for the two runs.
I was actually quite happy with him today. He did his job ate up some innings and kept his team in the ball game. Nothing wrong with that performance
He is going to be your secret weapon. Hopefully bullpen can give him his confidence back so he can be in the rotation. Even though he started early in the game as an emergency starter/relief pitching.
Terrible circumstances and I obviously wanted to see the A's win, but part of me was rooting for him too. I'm glad he was solid. I hope he can get his mojo back
Maybe he'd do better with an opener going before him? 1st innings seem to be his bugaboo
